What is your next step?

Together, the Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) and the Educational Facilities Professional (EFP) designations provide a professional credentialing continuum for the educational facilities professional.

The CEFP is the credential for both aspiring and existing senior-level educational facilities professionals with five (5) or more years of professional experience. In addition to knowledge based questions, the CEFP examination is designed to test and validate both professional experience and the sound application of knowledge.

The EFP is designed for the entry level professional with up to four (4) years’ management experience. The EFP credentialing examination consists of questions that are designed to validate one’s professional knowledge.
